Butterflies

Merry Monday: "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue" & "Holiday For Strings"

Two more dance numbers from the world of cinema!
The great Vera Ellen & Gene Kelly perform a big musical number from "Words and Music" (1948). Then the lovely Cyd Charisse gets to show off her ballet moves (along w/Margaret O'Brien) in a film that really isn't a musical, "The Unfinished Dance" (1947). It's actually a pretty dark film (but very good - I recommend it!), but the ballet numbers are simply wonderful!
